spinlogs

Spinlogs is a shell script for rotating system logs. It is configurable through a text file similar in format and featureset to the newsyslog program in FreeBSD. Any Unix system running ksh should be able to use it. There are many options defining how and when log files should be rotated, and the config file is very straightforward. Rotating log files is a pretty simple task, but some commercial platforms don't include anything better than the old "newsyslog", so this is provided as a system-independent alternative.
